FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


 


Q: Why did eBay allow me to post my auction if it is against the law?

A: eBay has indicated they are unable to conduct a comprehensive pre-screen of their auctions to account for all violations.  Therefore, certain impermissible items are allowed to be listed in violation of the law.



Q: Why did my auction get shut down?

A: Most likely, your auction was shut down because it displayed unauthorized reproductions of copyrighted images or trademarks owned by Mannatech.


 


Q: What if I did not know I was infringing on Mannatech’s intellectual property rights?

A: You have a responsibility to ensure your actions do not violate someone else’s intellectual property rights. Innocent intent does not negate liability under state and federal copyright and trademark law.


 


Q: Why is Mannatech concerned with my single auction when other sellers are listing multiple auctions?

A: Mannatech takes all matters of infringement seriously regardless of the quantity of listings. Mannatech will continue to work with eBay to have all unauthorized listings removed.
